“You’re the heartbeat of the 13th District, Murphy,” Gideon said and smiled as they sat on the hood of one of his cars together. “You’re badass, you carry a gun, and you don’t take BS from anyone.” He reminded her when she looked down.

Theresa nodded and then laughed. “Yeah, that’s true. I love my job and I love protecting this District and its people, but sometimes I need more. Sometimes I want more. I just don’t know if I deserve it.”

Gideon frowned at her words. “What kind of idiot told you that you don’t deserve to be loved? Not only do you have the attributes I mentioned before, but you’re also a kind, smart, beautiful woman..”

Theresa paused and then said, “What about you? I know that you’re a billionaire who’s got Daddy issues and is tech-obsessed, but outside of your ego, you’re a good man.” She said and smiled.

The frown left Gideon’s face and he said, “If I had met you anywhere else, I might’ve acted like a pompous jackass. I don’t wanna do that with you.” His eyes locked with hers and a few moments later, he leaned in and kissed her.

The end.
